THE NRL Grand Final was no match for Saturday's AFL Grand Final in the ratings stakes, after the showdown saw the Sydney Swans beat Hawthorn.

Channel 9's Rugby League Grand Final Presentation averaged 2.424 million viewers.

That was a whopping 700,000 less than Seven's AFL presentation which averaged 3.196 million viewers.

The Storm v Bulldogs NRL Grand Final match averaged 2.401 million viewers.

That was way behind the monster 2.937 million viewers for Saturday's Swans v Hawks clash.

Seven's AFL Grand Final ratings were boosted by big numbers in Sydney where 740,000 fans watch the Swans hold the Premiership cup aloft. ... 6485960141

"One in every 24 Australians is now a member of an AFL club, a sign that the national reach of Australian football has never been greater," League CEO Gillon McLachlan said.
